Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

This broccoli cauliflower salad recipe makes a welcoming addition to any vegan party or weeknight meal. I know my vegetarian friends would love this recipe.

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

  • 4 slices center-cut bacon (preferably nitrate-free)
  • 4 cups chopped broccoli
  • 3-4 cups chopped cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup glazed pecans
  • 1/4 cup finely-chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Fry bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Make sure broccoli and cauliflower florets are cut into small, bite-sized pieces. This not only makes the salad more appealing, it helps the flavors meld better. Place broccoli, cauliflower, pecans, onions and cranberries in a salad. Bowl. Toss. Whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour over the broccoli-cauliflower mixture, and toss to coat the salad evenly with dressing. When ready to serve, crumble the bacon over the broccoli cauliflower salad.
